    005: 5 Creative Steps to Less Stress

    Mindfulness and meditation is great in theory but sometimes when we actually put it into practice, it’s not quite as zen as we imagined that it would be. 
     
    The benefits that meditative practices can have on your life are nearly endless. But most people face challenges when incorporating meditation into their everyday life. Things like kids climbing all over you or a phone call that disrupts you mid-practice. The truth is, that’s completely normal.
     
    In this episode, I am giving you an overview of my free guide, 5 Creative Steps to Less Stress & More Joy.  You’ll hear me chat about the benefits of meditation, why you shouldn’t expect perfection with meditation and how these exercises can be used to ground yourself (or as a tool when you’re overly stressed out). 
     
    What you’ll find in this episode:
    A reminder on the three steps to mindful creation The endless benefits of meditation for your life How the challenges of incorporating meditation into your everyday life is completely normal An overview of what’s in the 5 Creative Steps to Less Stress & More Joy guide Why this is not a time to expect perfection Why this exercise can be used when you’re stressed or to just ground yourself

    004: Your Best Tool for Creating

    004: Your Best Tool for Creating

    Do you know what your best tool for creating is? It may not be quite what you think… actually, I think it may surprise you. 
     
    Your brain is one of the most powerful tools that you have for getting creative. Think about it. Have you ever struggled to start a creative project? You wanted to try something new but your brain was telling you, “I am not good enough to do XYZ.” Well, that may be because our brains have been conditioned since the beginning of time to use these default settings: seek pleasure, avoid pain, preserve energy. 
     
    In this episode, you’ll hear my own experience of how my brain was hindering me from learning how to use a new brush pen. I discuss why you should learn more about your brain and why you should let go of the features of the brain that aren’t serving you anymore. You’ll also hear how you can experience life differently once you learn how your brain operates. 
     
    What you’ll find in this episode:
    Her disappointment of using a pen she thought would turn her cursive into calligraphy Why she took a break from attempting to use that brush pen and what made her decide to give it another try How your brain is the most important tool for creating How your thoughts and feelings frame your outlook on everything that you go through  Why you should learn more about your brain and let go of features that aren’t serving you

    002: How Lettering Changed My Life

    002: How Lettering Changed My Life

    I’ve struggled with my mental health for over 20 years. For the longest time, I had no outlet for dealing with and navigating through my struggles with mental health. After reaching a low point in my life, a friend encouraged me to use my creativity as an outlet and I never looked back.
    I fell in love with the creative practice and using lettering as a way to get out of my own head. Words started to mean so much more to me and I was constantly taking notes on words that had meaning and value to me. Today I am sharing how I found out about life coaching and the shift I had with the negative voice in my head. I share how creativity can bring you mindfulness and why you should spend time doing what you love instead of only pouring into others.
    What you’ll find in this episode:
    Lisa's experiences with depression and anxiety in her youth and reaching her lowest point The story of how lettering was the surprise hobby that she didn't know she wanted How lettering positive phrases helped improve her mental health tremendously Why you should embrace the imperfections of creativity and invest in yourself!

    001: Welcome, I’m So Glad You’re Here

    In my own life, I’ve learned so much about myself and those around me through creativity and mindfulness. I am Lisa Funk, founder of Hand Lettered Design. From creating this business, my life has changed drastically. This experience as a business owner led me to learn about thought work, mindfulness and I even ended up getting certified as a life coach. In my practice, I combine my two favorite things - creativity and mindfulness. It is so fun and fulfilling and I can’t wait to share more about it with you. 
    In this podcast, I am going to tell you about all the things that have helped me. Not because I am perfect or have it all figured out but because I have been there. I have felt like there was something wrong with me, I have felt alone. Ultimately, I want to offer what I wish I would have had - someone to help me find more joy, confidence, excitement and answers to how I could feel better.
    This podcast is going to be all about keeping it real. I am a mom of four small children, a wife to my husband Andy and a business owner. I feel called to share my journey with you about my mental health, creativity and how they’ve combined in my life. I will chat about creativity, mindfulness, faith, family life and all of the things that really matter to us. I can’t wait to share more with you.

Couldn’t stop listening!

I enjoy her down-to-earth style! She is real talk & it’s ok to not be perfect with your lettering & in life. So refreshing to listen to someone who isn’t preaching “at” you; instead giving you positive creative outlets! I extended my walk just so I could finish listening to Lisa. Can’t wait to put this new found creativity to use.

I’m hooked!

I just discovered Lisa, and I’m so glad I did! I love how she combines creativity with heart, mind and soul health, and her warmth and enthusiasm to share with others what she’s learning is so encouraging! And you don’t have to be a letterer to enjoy it; I’m a watercolor artist and what she shares totally applies to all areas of creativity. Can’t wait for the next episode. Thanks Lisa!
